To say that I have worn many “hats” in my lifetime would be an understatement.

It’s not an easy thing, finding your place in this world. In the pursuit of finding what the heck I was supposed to be doing in life has, to say the least, been a long and arduous road.

Search and Rescue, EMS, Firefighter, Soldier, Sailor, Law Enforcement and even a firearm blogger and published author; I have long sought where my place in all this is meant to be.

I eventually ended up blogging for Tactical Sh*t with T.J. and the crew out of St. Louis, MO. I was there for several years, and that is when I met Todd Underwood from United Gun Group.

Eventually, Tactical Sh*t and I parted ways and that is when I started working for United Gun Group as Editor-in-Chief.

During all this, I was back at Church in a major way, having run from God and Christianity for 25+years. It was then, that I became heavily involved in ministry and helping lead the congregation. I soon began to realize that I was being called to do more.

More than just write about my passion of firearms and defending the Second Amendment. I was being called to help once again. To help those that were lost and needed to find the Way.

I soon enrolled in Seminary, and began my journey on the road to becoming a Pastor.

In the past year, I have been able to help so many people, young and old. I have been able to guide them in their faith and to be there for them when no one else was. Focusing on my studies and my work as a future Pastor, I am hanging up my spurs as a firearm blogger in the public eye.

I would like to take a moment to thank Todd Underwood, the CEO of United Gun Group for being such a blessing in mine and my families lives. Without him and his friendship and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank You!

I have made many friends along the way as a firearm blogger, and I do not regret my time in the 2A limelight. Thank you all for your support, and for your friendship.

I will never cease my stance on supporting the Second Amendment, and the freedoms that it allows us to continue to have. I will be ending my time as a journalist in the realm of firearms in June. Until then, I will continue to bring you all the most current and up to date news on firearms and the Second Amendment.

Thank you all! God Bless!!
